1. Um I am absolutely making this honey mustard chicken, bacon and avocado salad. !!!!
2. Did you see Britney perform at the Billboard music awards? I mean, she wasn’t singing (right?! or am I wrong?) but she is still Britney and amazing. I like the Britney for president campaign. PLEASE.
3. THIS is am awesome read on Britney and so true. Definitely been listening to her on spotify all week.
4. I do this weird thing where I NEED the house to be clean and clutter free on Friday for the weekend. I feel like most people are the opposite and want it cleaner for the week ahead. Odd?
5. Your go-to iced coffee or tea beverage? Tell me!
6. What the heck, Grey’s Anatomy? I kind of hated the ending. The Catch ending was cute though! Oooh and you know what I’m really excited for?! Bloodline to come back. Hoping Eddie and I can binge on a few episodes this weekend.
7. This should come as no shock, but who else is dying over all of the outdoor decor and patio/deck furniture at Target? Seriously, WHAT is in the air there that hooks me every time?
8. Four ways to stop procrastinating. Um, hello, this was written for me.
9. Thank you all so much for your herb planter ideas last week! I got one and herbs and tomatoes and peppers are going in this week… I’ll probably snap the heck out of it.

I’ve been a Britney fan since day 1. I love her. Always will. People make fun of her for her breakdown but girlfriend had PPD. I’m sure of it. She had two kids in ONE YEAR! Hello hormones. Folks, wake up. Britney isn’t a singer. She is a performer. I’m going to see her in Vegas next month and I can’t wait. Britney for life. (and no, she wasn’t singing. She never does. But that’s okay.)
i honestly never even thought of that!! i don’t know why. i am so jealous you’re getting to see her.
i am with you 10000%! Britney forever! I must have talked about her performance for 3 days straight this week, and no one gets it. so jealous of you getting to see her; enjoy!
YES! Good thought on PPD. So glad she was able to get help and get through. I adore her! It felt like her performance was a little stiff at the beginning, but I swear there was a moment where she just relaxed and looked like she was having fun. I’ve got to get to Vegas and see the show!
I had a big chicken/bacon/avocado/spinach salad thing going for a while, and now I totally need to bring it back. Love that dressing.
Bloodline was one of the only shows that my fiance and I watched the whole way through together, so hopefully that makes it onto the long weekend list. I used to have an obsession with all things Target, but now my Costco obsession makes a Target binge sound downright financially responsible. Can you link to the planter you found (if there is one)?
I cannot wait for Bloodline! Yay for Memorial Day weekend binge watching- although I have a child and the likeliness of any more than a couple of episodes being watched is slim. One can dream, right?
As for Britney, I agree with Michelle’s comment- she is a performer and I celebrate that about her! She isn’t the best singer, but that girl knows how to put on a show.
Okay, so the Friday cleaning deadline, I must must MUST do that, too. (Thanks for making me feel a little less crazy, type A, and OCD.) I think mine stems from the fact that I had two Jewish roommates in college and they observed Friday night Shabbat, so we didn’t go out much. Instead, we cooked, watched movies (really just Mean Girls on repeat and entire seasons of Friends) and did chores around the apartment like cleaning so that Saturday and Sunday were free for all the fun things.
Go-to iced coffee (well, iced latte) right now is a Cinnamon Toast Crunch latte they serve at my fav local coffee shop and I have no clue what they put in it but pretty sure it’s crack. Amazing.
Trader Joe’s has Iced Green Tea Lemonade…..warning: it will become an addiction. I buy three containers at a time.
This iced coffee drink is my JAM: https://dunnbrothers.com/coldpresskombucha/
It’s so pleasantly weird and I love it. :)
I totally get it with Target. They come out with the best stuff!!
I definitely love to have a clean house on Friday so I don’t spend my whole weekend cleaning away.
Iced drink – medium iced coffee with extra cream and extra sugar (aka, lite and sweet) at Dunkin Donuts. My whole family is addicted to it. Also, the Starbucks caramel coffee sold in the refrigerated section is so so good. I can drink it without creamer and that’s a major anomaly for me. Unfortunately, my Target always seems to be sold out of this flavor!
i clean the house usually on mondays/tuesdays. i like it clean for the weekend and those are usually my busiest days at work anyway so i never want to go out. nice to stay home and make a chill night out of getting things set up for the next few days.
Starbucks iced Americano with a touch of cream, no sweetener. LOVE IT.
I’d be happy to have my house clean at all… I am seriously the worst at chores. Hubs and I are both gone so much that the house gets neglected… I’m doing good to run a load of dishes once/week and occasionally put away the clean laundry (right now 3 baskets full are calling my name). I could spend a week deep cleaning at this point. Ridiculous.
4. No definitely not odd. I like everything to be clean for the weekend….#1 so I don’t have to spend the weekend cleaning and #2 so it looks decent when we have guests stopping by.
Favorite iced drink (usually from Starbucks): 3 shots of espresso, iced and blended in a venti cup. Add whatever syrups/sweeteners/milk you so desire! When I’m trying to cut back (ha!), I’ll do 2 shots in a grande!
I love black cold brewed coffee at home and if I’m in the mood for a treat lately I’ll do a coconut iced coffee (cold brew concentrate, milk, coconut syrup — I use Torani). delish! Also in the past I have done cold brew or concentrated coffee (aeropress) + sweetened condensed milk shaken with ice and…definitely not hated it. Sort of a vietnamese iced coffee vibe I guess. So strong and sweet.
I also have to have the house clean on Friday for the weekend! Love Bloodline too! And ice tea for me, unsweetened!
My go to iced coffee drink is a grande iced coffee from Starbucks, black with two pumps cinnamon dolce syrup. It’s sooo good, only 40 calories and pretty low in sugar :D
Go to coffee – tall split shot coconut milk latte with a hot splash of heavy cream. No sugar or flavor required.
I feel ya! Cannot with a Capital-C relax in a messy home.
First thing Saturday morning it must be tidy (at the surface level.) Deep clean must be done by Sunday night for the week ahead.
Britney was most definitely not signing – buuuutt can we talk about how AMAZING she looks!!
I usually just drink cold brew with a splash of almond/coconut half and half, BUT the other day I was at Peet’s coffee and tried the coconut black tie – cold brew with coconut, sweetened condensed milk, and cream, so freaking good!
It just feels wrong to mention this because you can’t really buy the syrup and when it comes out in stores, it’s cold in most of the country, but I adore Starbucks iced caramel brulee latte/add the syrup to iced coffee. Living in Canada doesn’t make this possible more than a few times a year, but coconut iced coffee from Dunkin with 1/2 milk and 1/2 cream. In all other occurrences (like 90% of my summer), cold brew + 1 sweetener + coconut creamer I smuggle over the border from Buffalo + a splash of milk.
I didn’t know Bloodline was back this week; thanks!
I am a Canadian so my go to iced coffee drink is an Ice Cap from Tim Hortons. They have a maple one now that I will have to try. As for the house cleaning. I love to clean my house on Friday as I spend more time at home on the weekend so it is nice for it to be clean. I work during the week so don’t care as much about the clean house.
I love the house clean for the weekends! The clutter seems to collect during the week (somehow..)
I live for iced coffee – even on the coldest day! I love it light and sweet, if I want something lighter/ not milky, I go for iced tea + lemonade. Sometimes even the iced green tea + lemonade at Starbucks (it sounds healthy somehow)
that HM chicken salad looks really good ! i need to try it. i am so behind on greys and wondering if i should just say F it and delete from my tivo or go with it and keep watching. i have tons of eps !
I actually clean my house on Wednesday or Thursday nights because I refuse to give up any of my weekend cleaning! You are right on!!
Iced Chai Tea with coconut milk. My go to summer drink. Make them at home and splurge occasionally at Starbucks and get an extra shot of vanilla in them.
So many kindred spirits! I cannot rest on a Friday until my house is spotless, the washing is done, I’ve baked something and Saturdays dinner is either prepped or finished. I think it stems from years of juggling full-time work and full-time mothering on top of a 3 hour daily commute. I do the grocery shopping on Saturday mornings, but kicking back for an hour late on Saturday afternoon with a book, an Appelles Leather Clove and Cardamom scented candle and a glass of wine, knowing everything is ‘done’ (albeit very temporarily :) )…it’s bliss.
Re the iced coffee…I don’t like very sweet drinks of any kind so I tend to make iced coffee at home using a Nutribullet. It’s just espresso, ice, full cream milk, a drizzle of maple syrup and a tiny dash of cinnamon.
Oh, and may I just add I would KILL for a bucket of those sprinkles! We have really boring sprinkles in Australia…
